E-M:/ NMU Creates Alternative Energy Minor


            MARQUETTE – In light of global warming and the increasing costs of energy and gasoline, electrical generating facilities worldwide are looking to alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power as a means of producing electricity and heat. Germany and several other foreign countries have been harnessing alternative energy for decades, and the practice is now spreading to much of the United States, including California, Texas and the Midwest.

            Starting in the 2006 fall semester, Northern Michigan University will implement an alternative energy minor, giving students the opportunity to learn about this burgeoning industry and familiarize themselves with its technology.

            The 20-credit minor consists of the following courses: introduction to alternative energies, DC circuit analysis, solar power, wind power, bioenergy, and heating systems II.
